Opening an Access desktop app from a SharePoint link

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I know we can create an Access web app that runs within SharePoint, and that's great.  But we're looking at our options for a specific situation.  Is it possible to put a link within SharePoint that opens an Access desktop app?  We tried putting a link to ACCDB and ACCDE files (in the same way as we can create links to Office files), but it didn't work.  Is there a way to do this?

Link Access 2007 to SharePoint 2007 Survey

So here is my problemo. I am trying to organize site requests into a system that will let us easially see what requests have come in and who are the particular owners or users associated with the requests. Currently we use a SharePoint 2007 Survey to collect all the requests. I was hoping to upgrade things by linking the Survey list to an Access 2007 db so we can manage the data better. However, whenever I attempt to link the Access DB to a SharePoint list, none of the survey lists show up. I was wondering if there was a way to make it so whenever someone completes a survey, it updates the Access DB. I have figured out a way to get this to work with InfoPath but I would rather use the surveys that already exist. Thank you, Jeb G.

Visual C++ Runtime Library error when opening documents in Powerpoint 2010 from Sharepoint link



I posted this question on the Office Powerpoint forum and did not get much response so thought I would try here.   Here is the link to that post  http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/pptshare/thread/36a58d07-b1ad-4935-a14e-086dae8cb786

I'm running Windows 7 with Office 2010.  We have a Sharepoint 2007 server.  Whenever I click a link from our Intranet site I get the error "this application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.  Please contact the applications's support team for more information."  It asks if I want to open in safe mode and I say yes and it never opens. 

During testing I also find that if I have a blank powerpoint .ppt file that I try to save to the same document library on the same site it works fine, but if I try to save a blank .pptx file to the site I get the same runtime error. 

This does not happen on all powerpoint or office documents being opened from the Intranet.  If I boot to safe mode it works fine.    If I copy the files local they work fine.  Any ideas on how to fix it?

Thanks so much!!!

SharePoint 'Open with Access' - > 'Link to data on the SharePoint site' does not display data wi


Here's the scenario:

- I have a custom list in SharePoint 2010 with approximately 30 columns and 450 rows

- When I got to 'List Tools' -> 'List' -> 'Open With Access', I have two options 1) Link to data on the SharePoint Site and 2) Export a copy of the data

- If I select either option, I am able to view the items in my list in 'DataSheet' view and in the bottom right of Access I see the 'Online with SharePoint' text

- If I select the PivotTable view and drag in a column to either the row or column option, I have not seeing my data if I choose option #1 above (Link to data on the SharePoint Site).  I am able to see my values if I select option #2 above and view in PivotTable view

- If I click the 'Refresh Pivot' button in the ribbon still no data. 

- If I got back to datasheet view, I see my data

Any ideas?

Any suggestions

Sharepoint 2010 - Lists not displaying Edit (Link to item) for Users with Edit Only access



I am using Sharepoint 2010.  I have several lists whose view includes the column "Edit (Link to Item)" in the default view.  I am the site admin so when I view the list the "Edit" column appears with the small "paper and pencil" icon and it works when clicked. 

I needed some users to only be able to view and edit existing items (not add or delete).  So I have created a site level permissions that I copied from "Read" and only checked the "Edit Items  -  Edit items in lists, edit documents in document libraries, and customize Web Part Pages in document libraries" under Lists. 

This new permission level does allow users to see the edit menu item on the standard "Title" hyperlink dropdown, but in the"Edit" column there isn't an icon or any clickable link to edit in the column.  Only from the menu.  Its as if the icon won't appear if I don't give them Add capability which is what I don't want.

 Thanks for any tips,






Direct Link to a Sharepoint 2010 file from Access, Excel, etc


Hi...our organization is upgrading to sharepoint 2010 from an earlier version.  In the earlier version, it was very easy to link to a document in a sharepoint library, from MS Access or Excel.  But now, on 2010 version, simply linking to the URL of the document no longer works.  It's like the file does not really exist in the location noted if you grab a shortcut URL.

Does anyone have any idea how we can continue to link to sharepoint 2010 documents, so all of our nicely linked access and excel processes continue to work

Hopefully I am making sense?

SharePoint Portal Server 2001: Search and Access Disparate Data Repositories in Your Enterprise


The knowledge worker is greatly empowered if she is able to access information across the enterprise from a central access point. With the SharePoint Portal Server 2001 Search Service you can catalogue information stored in Exchange public folders, on the Web, in the file system, and even in Lotus Notes databases. This article discusses the use of ActiveX Data Objects and the Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning protocol for creating search solutions based on SharePoint Portal Server 2001.

How to add a desktop gadget into the SharePoint site.


I have a desktop gadget which is working fine on Win7. I need a help in adding the same desktop gadget in the SharePoint (2007) site. I went through different forums and came to know that the gadget can be added to the SharePoint site by using a Content Editor. But all of them focus on showing how to add a Google Web gadget or other third party Web gadget. 

First of all, is it possible to achieve this requirement?

If its possible, could you please explain (provide steps) me, how to add a desktop gadget in a SharePoint site.

Thanks in advance..

Sharepoint site client access denied


I have an sharepoint application which was working fine.

I encountered a license expired message in sql server enterprise evaluation 2008 version after which i changed the date to 2 months earlier date, I have also changed HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\100\ConfigurationState to 3 after which sql server started working but the issue is that the clients are unable to access the sharepoint site completely. On providing the url the web site requests for logon information and then access is denied. The same url with the same authentication credentials is accessible from the server and the entire application works fine from the server. 

From the  client the below error page appears.

You are not authorized to view this page

You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.

Please try the following:

  • Contact the Web site administrator if you believe you should be able to view this directory or page.
  • Click the Refresh button to try again with different credentials.
